PERSONAL styling sessions are not just for the celebrities who need constant image maintenance.

They're a great way to provide inspiration, help you with any insecurities and get you out of a style rut.

Having someone else take charge of your style opens you up to types of clothing you never would have dared to pick yourself.

You may be surprised.

If not for you, they're a great present for the person who has everything or as a pamper gift.

Cassandra Fisher is the stylist for Stockland Gladstone and we did a session with four local ladies.

For this shoot Cassandra used a lot of colour, matching elements in the clothes to the accessories and shoes.

It's all very on-trend, but if your style is more classic don't worry.

Cassandra gets clients to fill out a questionnaire to tailor her styling to your needs.
